Delicious lunch

La Zingara has an interesting menu, Italian, but not your average fare. We shared several dishes so we could get a broader sample of the menu. The mussels were very good, served in a broth with fennel and wine. Another appetizer was a dish of two baby-back ribs with delicious peasant bread and... read more

We had dinner here with close friends. I had lunch here once, but my wife had never been here. We were very pleased with our visit. They have an extensive wine list and interesting craft beer selection. I had the salmon, two had the lasagna special and the final person the swordfish special. We were all happy with our meals,...

Good Restaurant, Both meal and service were very good. Otherwise extremely loud and boisterous. If your preference is for a place where you would like a meal where people can have a conversation without literally yelling at each other across the table, this is not the place to go to. Too bad the owners have no clue when it comes... More

Simply delicious is the way to describe La Zingara! From the apps the salumeria board, to the salads which are perfectly dressed and then where do I begin with the dinner The veal is always tender and paired up perfectly with the eggplant and prosciutto and the ribeye steaks are always cooked perfectly! Great bottles of wine! And then let's... More

Off on a side street is a small restaurant La Zingara which is serving up some really tasty Italian fare...and not just the usual spaghetti and lasagna (in fact, neither are on the menu). A dish of pasta cooked just perfectly Garganelli al Ragu di Maiale with a pork and fennel sauce (mine) and a tender, Pan roasted breast of... More

Went for dinner and shared appetizers, salad and an entree. The sauce with the calamari was amazing, but the calamari itself was rubbery, and the whole meal was like that: the focaccia was lovely, the salad was pleasant, the duck was good...nothing was bad but nothing was exquisite. All in all it was good, but for the price it should... More

The food is always wonderful, as is the service. It's not inexpensive, but you get what you pay for. This is where I come every birthday, anniversary, Mothers Day. And the Sunday brunches are fantastic. And a deal!

We used to live nearby and had the luxury of enjoying the great food, fabulous wine list and attentive staff on a regular basis. Now that we live out of state, we make a point of getting a reservation there every time we are back in the area and it never disappoints. It's the one place we wish we could... More

This is our first experience with this restaurant. We went with friends who had recommended it and we were not disappointed. The tortellini casserole is delicious and filet mignon great. Waitress was very good at describing the specials of the night. Would definitely go back for a special occasion.

We love the food the help and the atmosphere. Almost don't want to give it a good review because more people will go and make it hard for us to get a table. Well worth it in bethel. You won't be disappointed. Love the mixed berry dessert
